New Moon in Taurus

April 26 2017 is a new Moon in Taurus. The Moon is exalted in Earth sign Taurus. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet named for the goddess of love, art, and beauty. Time to cultivate and create love and beauty this month! Find romance, or let romance find you. Taurus enjoys the finer things in life, so enjoy the bounty of springtime.

This lunar month is also an opportune time to bring down to Earth plans, goals, and to complete projects. Clear the way, or as much as you can clear, for the next new Moon that begins Fire Horse month.

The Taurean new Moon creates a harmonious sextile with Neptune in Pisces; sensitivity to surroundings is increased, people are more imaginative, and more intuitive to follow hunches. There’s a general sense of empathy to the moods of others, that leads to emotional understanding.

Mercury, still retrograde, conjuncts Uranus in Aries, bringing an element of genius to problem solving. People are open to new ideas and experiences, and communication is more interesting and exciting, But the mind can race, or get ahead of yourself. Fortunately, Mercury and Uranus trine Saturn for constructive change, letting go of old perceptions, and adds to the stability of the new Moon and Sun in solid Taurus.

Snake Month

This new Moon begins the month of the Wood Snake. Those born in Snake year or Snake day love art, culture, and all things beautiful.

Snake month is naturally fortunate in this Phoenix (Rooster) year because Snake, Phoenix, and Ox make a relationship compatibility trine. This months brings opportunities to smooth over old relationship difficulties, and shed skins of the past, especially after Mercury goes direct on May 3. This new Moon in sensual Taurus builds to a passionate full Moon in Scorpio on May 10.

Luck is strongest this month for those born in the year of the Snake, Phoenix, Ox, and Monkey and Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.

2017 MERCURY RETROGRADE TOMORROW!

April 8, 2017 § 2 Comments

April 9 – May 3 2017 communication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks.

Traditionally in astrology, Mercury retrograde is a time of miscommunication, technology problems, and items lost or misplaced. But Mercury retrograde during this Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year 2017 can be an excellent time to focus on detailed tasks and catch up on financial matters.

April 9 – 20 Mercury retrograde in Earth sign Taurus. Good to follow up, get grounded, and complete tasks. You can be thorough and take your time. Venus rules Taurus who loves art, beauty, and enjoying the finer things of life.

April 20 – May 3 Mercury retrograde in Fire sign Aries for strong communication and taking immediate action. Fire brings energy to complete projects, but impulsive or snap decisions can be corrected at a later time.

We feel the Mercury retrograde influence until the new Moon on May 26 that begins a new lunar cycle.

2017 Libra Full Moon is Peak of Dragon Month

April 7, 2017 § 4 Comments

 


April 10 2017 is a full Moon in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of relationships, partners, and marriage. Time to focus on balance in your close relationships as the lunar cycle wanes. This full Moon marks the peak of Dragon month in this Phoenix (Rooster) year. Dragon and Phoenix are a symbol of marriage and relationship harmony.

This full Moon conjuncts Jupiter bringing kind feelings and generosity towards others. There can be understanding and empathy on a deep intuitive level, with clear and honest expression, that’s very helpful during Mercury retrograde from April 9 until May 3.

The full Moon, Sun, Jupiter, and Uranus square Pluto. There could be fights or ego conflicts for power, especially now during the peak of Dragon month because Dragon is strong, mighty, and will not be told what to do. Or there could be clashes with those in authority, and ambition could be blocked by others.

Fortunately, the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus trine Saturn bringing stability and creative balance of old and new. Disciplined or serious work can be rewarding, and methodical steps lead to significant progress and professional advancement. Luck is strongest for Air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini and those born in Dragon, Tiger, and Horse years. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

Waxing or Waning Moon?

March 29, 2017 § Leave a comment

Tonight is a sliver of crescent Moon in Taurus as the lunar cycle begins. The Sun is in Aries, and it’s Wood Dragon month, so time to take action this spring as the Moon waxes to full.

How to tell if the Moon is waxing or waning? DOC.
The waxing Moon is shaped like the curve in the letter D.
The full Moon is the letter O.
The waning Moon is shaped like the letter C.

It’s that simple. Just remember DOC.

2017 Aries New Moon begins Dragon Month

NEW MOON in ARIES

March 27 2017 is a new Moon in Aries the ram. Fire sign Aries is courageous, a brave leader, and an independent spirit. The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus are all in Aries. So take action and move forward as this new Moon waxes to full on April 10 because on April 9, Mercury goes retrograde for three weeks until May 3. During Mercury retrograde it’s good to redo, restructure, and reorganize.

Fortunately, Mars sextiles Neptune and trines Pluto bringing activities that can benefit the common good, with focus on higher principles. Creative ambition is stimulated, and there’s an awareness of long-range objectives. People have a high energy level and drive for success, especially professional success, with renewed strength and confidence.

There is a stressful cardinal T-square between Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto making it easy to spread your energy too thinly, become overwhelmed, or behave recklessly. Should this occur, the Mercury retrograde cycle is ideal to regroup.

WOOD  DRAGON  MONTH

This new Moon starts the month of the powerful Dragon. Of the five Taoist elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood this is the month of the Wood Dragon. The element Wood represents spring, the time of growth and movement like plants growing in springtime. Dragon’s earthly branch is Wood, giving Wood Dragon a double dose of Wood’s enthusiasm, drive, creativity, and idealism.

Luck is strongest during this lunar month for the Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Dragon, Monkey, Rat, and Phoenix (Rooster) years. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation in this Dragon month.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

2017 Virgo Full Moon March 12

March 9, 2017 § Leave a comment

Virgo full Moon on March 12, not 10. I apologize for the typo.

March 12 2017 is a full Moon in Virgo. Earth sign Virgo rules the 6th house of health, service, and work. These activities are the focus of this full Moon energy, and the energy of the next two weeks as the lunar cycle wanes.

Fortunately, the full Moon trines Pluto making emotions stronger with more sensitivity and empathy towards others. Pluto brings psychological insights that lead to growth and understanding. Relationships can be a source of self discovery. Connections are not superficial, and there is a desire for depth in all your interactions. Plus love planet Venus is retrograde from March 4 until April 15. If relationship problems come to the surface, strong ones survive. Weak ones can be reevaluated.

Saturn is the planet of maturity, duty, and hard work. Saturn in Sagittarius squares the full Moon, and the Sun and Mercury in Pisces. There could be delays at work, and colleagues might feel discouraged. Or there could be difficulties in communication due to conflicting viewpoints. So strive to be clear about what work obligations are yours, and what are for others. Mental discipline is important now because it’s easy to be judgemental or have negative thoughts.

Luck is strongest for Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Phoenix (Rooster), Ox, and Snake years. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.

Happy full Moon,

Susan
